Why are you in this particular club?

Theater is what I really love to do and what I want to do later in life.

When I lived in Chicago I saw Tortoise and the Hare and that’s what really sparked my interest in theater.

How long have you been in this club?

I have been in theater for 8 years, since I was 7.

I’m looking forward to the Thespian Convention in November. At the convention, we go to workshops and conventions with other Thespians from Texas.  I am excited to represent Vandegrift.

Does this club relate to what you want to do in the future?

Yes because I want to do New York theater on Broadway.

How does this club impact your other school events/activities?

I have no other activities, theater takes up most of my time, but I do make time for studying, homework and family.

How will this club impact your college resume?

This will highly impact my resume and all of my theater experience will look very good to the colleges I want to go to, which is Texas State or South Florida.

What is a fun fact about you?

I was thinking about this the other day. I am extremely OCD, I don’t even like when my food touches each other on the plate.
